Mechanical Engineering

Prerequisites None. However, it is envisaged that those opting for this course have completed at least one year of study in Workshop Technology, preferably at Year 10 and Year 11. Description Below is a selection of Unit Standards that could be delivered to give students exposure to Mechanical Engineering in a practical context. The Unit Standards are delivered in a series of practical projects predetermined and built from plans. These projects are documented by a log of evidence towards attainment of the standards. The emphasis is on developing practical skills and knowledge. The breakdown of time allocation for this course equates to about 80% in a workshop environment, and 20% in a design and theory classroom.

Assessment This course contributes towards NCEA Level 2, with all 18 credits internally assessed.

The following Unit Standards will be assessed:

• US 32055 (8 credits – internal) Demonstrate knowledge of and apply good work practices when performing simple fabrication operations in MaPS environment. • US 32053 (8 credits – internal) Demonstrate knowledge of and apply good work practices when performing machining operations in MaPS environment. • US 21911 (2 credits – internal) Demonstrate knowledge of safety on engineering worksites,

All assessments use Industry Training Organisation-designed and moderated (Competenz) assessment material.
